First I am using a sample spreadsheet that has date and customer counts.  Using the typical acquisition (like Lumira) I select New document.

Under the Predict tab, open up Algorithms and select Time Series, Triple Exponential Smoothing as shown below:

Then Configure Settings – there are two ways to do that.  First, right click or select configure settings under Component Actions:

These are the settings I used:

I selected Forecast, with the target variable forecasting Customer Count.

I left the defaults and selected Done.

Then I select Run to Forecast the model.

Success message, click OK

I can review in Grid View.

The best for last is the Trend view, showing the predictions graphically.

What is nice about this version is the hover capability as shown above I can see the values.

Also, I didn’t look at any help to do the above, I simply started using it, without any training.

    very useful, thank you very much. I will try installing predictive analysis. Do you maintain a blog site or some thing similar on other topics as well?

    Hi Tammy,

    Interesting example! I would be nice to see the results that the automated analytic time series would give on this particular dataset.

    Thanks

    Antoine
